Abstract:

The radar scattering by a conducting hemisphere for incidence along the symmetry axis has been determined as a function of frequency, bistatic angle, and polarization. From this frequency domain information, the short- pulse response is constructed using Fourier synthesis. The range resolution thus afforded permits identification of various contributions to the scattering - in particular, that due to edge diffraction. Results obtained from the geometrical theory of diffraction are in qualitative agreement with those obtained here.
